One of the most charismatic movie stars of all time, Cary Grant left an indelible mark on the film industry and on the wider culture. His immaculate sense of style, so integral a part of who he was onscreen and off, has been admired, emulated and lauded, but never fully examined - until now. This groundbreaking book reveals the style secrets that helped to make Grant a fashion icon and a perennial inspiration to fans and fashion designers alike, even now, more than 40 years after he completed his final film. Fashion and style writer, Richard Torregrossa makes a powerful case for why Cary Grant matters today more than ever. His absorbing narrative will draw on original interviews with Tom Wolfe, Giorgio Armani, Peter Bogdanovich, Grant's Savile Row tailor, and his surviving family members, among many others. The book will include rare and never-before-published photographs, drawings, personal letters, and other documents from the Cary Grant estate.
Richard Torregrossa has been a fashion journalist for ten years, writing for the New York Times, Washington Post, Cosmopolitan and many other publications. He is the author of six previous books. He lives in Los Angeles.
